  • About

Whereas a mushroom soup in the West is typically a hearty affair, rich and filling, a mushroom soup in China is delicate and light. The stock is clear and the mushrooms float in strips on the top, garnished with a sprinkling of green. It is a simple bowlful, meant to be sipped throughout the meal as a beverage, or drunk at meal’s end to settle and soothe (though you may serve it as an opener if you like, in the spirit of a good consommé.)
